just to introduce myself. I am a newcomer to holding an allotment, this will be my 3rd season. More green around the gills than the fingers. Doing so many things wrong, bumbling along, but thoroughly loving it. Yes, I've succeeded in growing leeks, ok, they're about 1" in diameter - but do I care? No! (Well, not much). (Sobs) I've been amazed how wonderful the people I've met on the allotments are, friendly, supportive and generous. Looking forward to meeting even more of you here in the same spirit.
